That whooshing noise is the collective sigh of relief of developers everywhere who no longer face the prospect of being stuck with coding for multiple NUMA domains for desktop/workstation use.
It is a great upgrade on both the platform and the chip, a proper next generation, so much want! unfortunately not enough need
Would have been interesting to see core boost scaling with processor thread load
I've got absolutely no use for so many cores but i can't help thinking Phwoar when looking at these, i imagine if you've got a use for so many cores these are a boon.
You can spend lots of time looking at all the bars in task manager and going Phwoaaaar - hours of entertainment right there
Is that a smug little chuckle I can hear from a certain Dr. Su? Well deserved, Lisa.
OK; same socket/chipset aside -- all that extra & no extra TDP (claimed)...? Looks impressive, but I can't see any reason why anyone would want to game with this kinda setup...
I don't think they would, they may want to game when they're not using it for work though.
They'd do it for the ePeen.
Fair... lucky rich bar stewards.
Sounds about right...
Because you buy nice hardware to work on but when not working its playtime.
I can't see someone that rich not having an i9-9900K/2080ti system for gaming...
So, I just need Bitcoin to climb before I can afford this.
Barbaric. Absolutely barbaric.
The mind boggles at what the 64 core will be capable of.
Running an SMB datacenter/network, mebbe...?
... of a sizeable hand/armful of VM's...
Imagine the mining VM's you could run WITH one...!
63 times more than what one core is capable of.
Sorry, i couldn't resist.
So is the price tag:
3900x + mobo + ram approx £1k
Intel HEDT + mobo + ram = £1.5 - £2k
32 Core Ripper? Cpu + mobo + ram approx £3k....
I don't begrudge the prices at all. They're far cheaper than when we were under Intel's rule. You know? The same Intel charging £185 for a unlocked 2c 4t I3 before Ryzen came along.
If you actually need all those cores on a regular basis then yes the price is fine, but for the majority it just makes more sense to buy a "puny" CPU instead and spend the difference on a 2080TI or a couple SSDs.
